After the jump we will have a major SPOILER to discuss regarding Wally West in FLASH #30 – do not go forward unless you’ve read the latest issue (or unless you don’t mind being spoiled)…
SPOILER AHEAD – YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
Wally West is the unidentified kid “five years from now” who doesn’t make it out of that wreck. That’s why the Future Flash of twenty years from now comes back to the present day…to stop the events of five years from now and to save Wally West. Thanks to golddragon71 at The Fastest Forum Alive for the following post (CLICK HERE) that includes some important pics.
Wally obviously is not meant to stay “dead” – he has already been noted to have a significant role in the Flash moving forward, and as we all know “dead” NEVER means “dead” in comics. We should see more of a very-much-alive Wally soon. The character design is a departure from the past, with dark hair instead of red, and with a look that at least creates the implication that Wally’s parents may have a different heritage than in past iterations of the character. Still, this IS Wally – and without even taking a breath he has already had major implications for THE FLASH. Overall, I’m glad to see his return and am ready to give the new team a chance to tell this New 52 Wally’s story. What are your thoughts? Happy, not-so-happy, reserving judgment…what do you think?
